Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

The Real Reason for the Getaway 3 of 3


The last two posts of Elk and Sheep were the bonus part of the trip. The real reason was to enjoy my oldest son and family for the brief time that they were back in Canada.
There are many reasons for the trip, the first is the chance to get a family portrait in the "wilds" of the Shuswap.
The second is to get more photos  of the family. It may be a while before we get the chance again as they head back to the States on Tuesday.
It is a great chance to see kids playing in the snow.
It is a great spot to see fabulous scenery and watch the grand kids sliding.
It is also a chance to celebrate an early Christmas with them and to continue  the tradition of bringing home the tree.
It is an opportunity to see more scenery.

How's this for cute!





Family: What Christmas is all about, and celebrating God's gifts to us!
